Cruise Description

3 Night Cruise sailing from Myin Mu to Bagan onboard Belmond Road to Mandalay.

From the charming riverside town of Myin Mu to breathtaking Bagan, savour the sights of this mesmerising country as you cruise the Ayeyarwady River.

Day One – Mandalay - Myin Mu
During the early months of the year, the water levels of the Ayeyarwady River typically drop for a period of a few weeks to a few months, creating a narrower channel for navigation near Mandalay. During this time, Belmond Road to Mandalay moors at Myin Mu, a typical riverside town 30 miles south of Mandalay. This mooring location gives our guests a unique opportunity to experience some beautiful rural areas and less-visited sites in the countryside.

Check-in at a local restaurant in Mandalay where you will enjoy a traditional lunch.

After lunch there is a choice of tours available. The first option will take you to witness some of Mandalay's traditional arts, continuing on to vist the ancient capital of Amarapura, the famous U Bein Bridge and the Sagaing hills. Alternatively, board a chartered boat at Htin-Win Jetty for a scenic cruise, accompanied by complimentary refreshments, to meet Belmond Road to Mandalay in Myin Mu.

Dine on Asian and Western cuisine in the elegant Restaurant, enjoying our excellent house wines or selecting an international label from our extensive list.

Day Two – Myin Mu & Sailing
Stretch out and relax at an early-morning yoga session, followed by a refreshing treat from our Healthy Juice Bar.

This morning, disembark to explore the town of Myin Mu, beginning with a traditional almsgiving ceremony. Next, board tri-shaws for a ride around the town, which will include a visit to the local market and learning about the area's small cottage industries.

Return to the ship for lunch as your journey continues to Bagan.

Take the afternoon at leisure, making the most of the spa or relax by the pool. Savour a traditional afternoon tea on our onboard “Burmese Tea Shop”.

This evening dress in your longyi for our cocktail party, followed by another delicious dinner in the Restaurant.

Day Three – Bagan
Early birds may wish to rise in time for a sunrise yoga or meditation classes as the ship sails to Bagan.

A range of tour options are available today.

Introduction to Bagan - explores the temples and history of the area.

A Day in the Life - explores local culture, food and markests.

Bagan by Bicycle - offers an action-packed tour for those seeking adventure.

Before rejoining the ship for lunch, stroll through the small village that is home to Belmond's private jetty near Old Bagan. You may wish to visit Belmond's free clinic where our onboard doctor will be treating local patients.

In the afternoon visit Ananda, one of Bagan's most magnificent temples. Continue your tour as you explore an off-the-beaten-track temple by torchlight. End your visit by savouring a spectacular sunset across the plains.

Dine under the stars at the Road to Mandalay Grill on the Observation Deck, before enjoying a classic marionette performance.

Day Four – Depart Bagan
For an additional supplement, early risers can take a sunrise hot-air balloon flight over the pagodas.

An early-bird breakfast is served before you disembark from Belmond Road to Mandalay for your onward travel arrangements.
